Compressed air dryers

Why use compressed air dryers in your compressed air system? If you have problems with moisture in your compressed air line you will require a compressed air dryer. Most dryers you can buy in the market will work on the basis of being either refrigerated or desiccant. Refrigerated dryers are lower cost, lower maintenance and often use less energy to operate, however they dont dry the air as much as a desiccant dryer. Having said this for most industrial applications a refrigerated dryer is more than adequate. Desiccant dryers will normally be required for more specialist applications such as food and pharmaceutical. Humidity is a component of atmospheric air, which can be found in the compressed air distribution systems and the machines that use the compressed air in the form of condensate and/or vapour. If left untreated the humidity found in compressed air in the form of vapour, will follow the air flow all the way to the final product. When it then cools, a part of this humidity present in the compressed air condenses to form water and over time causes serious damage to the distribution network, the machines using the compressed air and the final product.

Key product features

  • No more moisture in the airlines.
  • Longer life for pneumatic equipment, as the use of dry air guarantees reliable performance over time
  • Greater productivity due to fewer machine faults.
  • Lower maintenance costs as condensate is the main wear in may applications.
  • Energy saving as there will be no corrosion in the pipework causing pressure drop
